Hi,
I'm a newb, so take this for what it's worth.

I just installed SuSE 9.0 at home and it picked up my home network immediately. I can access all of my XP shares, no problem. Did a few read/writes, file transfers, all went well.
I didn't try mapping a drive, but I'd assume that would be fairly simple.

Just my $.02.

yeah, i know that i can mount the drives...then again, i guess that i could just run a script at startup that mounts them automagically. I guess that's what i get for "posting before i think".

You can mount them via fstab ... but personally I like to mount them via an external script.

See this for a way to mount samba shares in fstab.
